The Summit Country Day School Reviews

The Summit is tops! We put all three of our boys through the school, and I’m certain that it was the best choice that we/they could have made. The academic preparation was exceptional, and our boys developed close relationships with several faculty members. Their athletic experiences were outstanding as well. Each boy played multiple sports all the way through, and they were blessed to play for great coaches who made character their primary focus. As a launching-off point for college and life, The Summit provided everything we could have hoped for.

The Summit is a caring community of faculty, staff, coaches, administrators and parents. Each of our three children have attended The Summit since Montessori and have had wonderful experiences in all divisions of the school. (Montessori, Lower, Middle and Upper schools). Very easy to get involved both as a student and as parents. Would highly recommend! The Summit's 5 Pillars include: Spiritual, Academic, Physical, Artistic, and Social... all which are well represented throughout.
I had two children go through this school. Both very different, yet the school met the needs of both in a superior way. Caring yet demanding teachers. They took the time to know and understand each child well. School is surprisingly diverse. Writing program is the best. Both kids sailed through college getting A's on all their papers. School cared about the character and faith development of my children. If you're concerned about the values of your child, this is the place to send them. We weren't Catholic, yet our faith tradition was respected and valued. My son loved the athletic opportunities he had there. The no cut policy allowed him to be a three sport athlete. The Lower School provides an outstanding foundation. Math and literacy are especially strong. Both my children grew up loving to learn.
